Born in Cordoba Argentina in 1980, my family and I moved to Mississauga Ontario Canada in 1987. I spent my childhood in Ontario until I moved to Vancouver British Columbia in 2004 to continue my education. In my childhood I was always fascinated by science and nature which would shape my life as I grew up. I have two diplomas in Automation and Robotics and Environmental Protection Technology respectively. I currently work in an analytical chemistry laboratory in the public sector within the environmental field of study.
My photography all started when I got interested in astrophotography. I begun to take astrophotos in 1997 due to a fascination with astronomy. Since the very first time I looked through a telescope, I dreamed of being able to capture what I was seeing on film. I started taking astrophotos with a Pentax film SLR. As time went by and technology improved, in the late 1990's I begun to experiment with modified webcams that I would attach to my telescope via plumbing parts. Over time, I utilized a Canon G3 point and shoot and later on a Canon Digital Rebel XT DSLR to take my photos. I mainly concentrated on photographing the solar system and a few of the brighter deepsky objects.
My love for astrophotography begun to change when I moved to British Columbia to more conventional terrestrial photography. Since 2004, my passion for photography has flourished and I have taken many thousands of photos. I shoot a wide variety of photo genres including macro, nature, landscape and fine art. I believe that even the most mundane everyday objects have their own beauty and therefore I try to capture this beauty with my camera. I currently shoot with a Canon 7D Mark II DSLR, a Canon 50D DSLR and several lenses including a Canon 100-400 mm L telephoto, a Canon 24-105 mm L lens, a Sigma 105mm F2.8 macro, a Sigma 10-20 mm wide angle, a Canon 50mm F1.8 portrait lens and a Canon 17-85mm lens. By photography industry standards, this is modest equipment but I believe it is not about the equipment but about how you use this equipment to capture beautiful photos. Some of the best photographs are taken with modest equipment!
I am not a professional photographer however in the future I would like to work with photography more. My passion for photography burns as bright as ever and I can't wait to go out and shoot my next series of images and share them with the world!
